Step #1 Provide the following company information:
Full business/organization name
Full street address, city, state & zipcode
Federal and State identification numbers
Company phone/fax numbers
Name/title/phone number of responsible individual
Billing address if different from above
Step #2 Determine method of payment. Our preferred method of payment is a company credit card. In this case we bill you weekly for your prior week’s fulfillment fees and expense reimbursements. We then debit your company credit card the next day for the charges. We will need the card type, credit card number, full name on the card, and expiration date.
If you do not wish to pay by credit card we require an account deposit of $500.00. We will debit this deposit weekly for the prior week’s expenses and provide you a statement of account. You must make additional deposits to keep the balance above zero dollars. If your account balance falls below zero when the deposit method is used or your credit card payment is declined your account will be placed on hold until the situation is resolved.
Step #3 Read the Fulfillment Agreement. Shipment of your initial stock will indicate acceptance of this agreement.
Step #4 Ship your initial stock to ENROUTE, 431 Galvin Road North, Bellevue, NE 68005. Please pack and label your shipment carefully and include an itemized packing list. Also insure your shipment to us if damage or loss is possible.
Research Your Best Carriers…
We can ship via UPS, FedEx or USPS. As a general rule, we ship via first class mail for packages that have a ship weight of 13 ounces or less, We ship parcel post 13 ounces to 3 pounds and UPS-ground for shipments 3 pounds and above.
Consider UPS, FedEx or USPS Transit Insurance…
Your UPS and FedEx shipments have an automatic $100 damage or loss insurance coverage and automatic tracking. Your USPS shipments have no automatic insurance coverage or tracking. To increase UPS or FedEx coverage or provide USPS coverage, include an insurance request with coverage amount in your ship instructions to us. The additional insurance cost will be added to our charges automatically. Regarding insured losses, you can be compensated for your cost only, not the sale price of the item. Our liability for transit damage is limited to the base and/or extended coverage provided by the carrier used.
Send Special Packaging–If Necessary…
Our normal packaging is brown cardboard boxes for items that cannot be shipped in standard envelopes. We stock most UPS, FedEx and USPS standard cartons and envelopes. If your project requires imprinted, white cardboard or other special packaging please let us know.
Label Your Products…
If your products can be easily confused due to similar appearance or lack of unique labeling, you should individually label each item to eliminate potential pick/pack errors later on.
